Absolutely magnificent! I am glad that I asked for more images.

Many thanks.

Although the time and type of ship are different, Image 9696 made me think of the dramatic stern chase of HMS Leopard by the Dutch 74 Waakzaamheid in Patrick O'Brian's novel Desolation Island.

Great work. I also do naval modeling on wood and I assure you that the aspect of the sails you have achieved is the best I have seen. Superb!!!

"JohnMGD: From a fellow countryman it's always good to hear approval. Isn't there a saying that a prophet in his own country is rarely appreciated. You are proof of the opposite."

Ab, you are simply the best in making these Historical Dutch sailing ships, you just have the right background, my deepest respect for this !!

Amazing work. Those 17th century warships, with all of their decoration, were truly works of art, and your model certainly brings this to life.

What an amazing work of art... I really enjoyed reading the essay and learning about the story behind the ship (yours and the real ones). Thank you for sharing.

Ab,

Another wonderful model.

I'm also following your post SOS. The complexity of the rigging and sails is in self a work of a master.

Thanks again gents, for your praise. You really make an old man feel good :-).

A former colleague at the Rijksmuseum, Susan Meyer, suggested i should use 'voile cotton' for sails and she gave me a piece, which I used for this ship, with the result shown here-fore. She also mentioned the name of an English company which was most helpful in finding the right material after a sample of the wanted textile was sent to them. It is a remarkable company, called Whaleys (Bradford) located at Harris Court, Great Horton, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD7 4EQ in England. I sent them a sample of the very fine cotton I used until my stock (which existed of a sort of textile, I removed from old maps, soaked in water) was gone and I had to find a replacement. Today I received an answer with several samples of cloth that were very close. Indeed, like my colleague suggested 'voile cotton' was one of them, but there was another, called 'Navara fine lawn white', which seems even slightly better. It is slightly less transparent and very closely woven.
It costs 22,74 pound per meter (1.55 m wide) and if more than 2 meters are purchased the price is 18,95 pound. 'Voile cotton cream' is slightly cheaper but comes with a width of 1.40 m.

I supposed some of you just wanted to know.
